98 Buick LeSabre starter motor removal

My brother has this car and the starter motor is just making a rough grinding sound when you try to start the car..But before I get him a new starter I just want to make 100% sure that`s the problem and take
the starter off and go get it tested...Looking under there it seems a pain to remove..It looks like I see one bolt going sideways up to the motor..Most starters I`ve replaces the bolts run longways along the starter body...Plus it looks as if there are things that are in the way of removal...Any input before I go mess with this again will be appreciated

Starter Motor Replacement
Removal Procedure
Caution Before servicing any electrical component, the ignition key must be in the OFF or LOCK position and all electrical loads must be OFF, unless instructed otherwise in these procedures. If a tool or equipment could easily come in contact with a live exposed electrical terminal, also disconnect the negative battery cable. Failure to follow these precautions may cause personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information. Remove the splash shield. Remove the flywheel inspection cover bolts. Remove the cover. Disconnect the starter motor wiring. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts. Remove the starter motor.
Installation Procedure
Notice Before installing the starter motor to the engine, secure the electrical terminals by tightening the nuts next to the cap on the solenoid battery terminal and on the SD-255 S terminal. If these terminals are not tight in the solenoid cap, the cap may be damaged during installation of the electrical connections and cause the starter to fail later.
Install the starter motor.
Notice Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
